(Natural News) Desperate to transform his country into a clone of communist China, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has introduced new legislation that would censor the Canadian internet and make everything on it politically correct.
Citing the threat of “hate speech” and “hurtful” language, particularly against politicians like himself, Trudeau wants to force all social media platforms, including Facebook and Twitter, to start immediately removing all content that someone on the left might feel is “offensive.”
“Once a publication is flagged, it will have to be taken down within 24 hours of having it being flagged,” confirmed Canadian Heritage Minister Steven Guilbeault, who announced the plan during a recent videoconference with the Centre for Israel and Jewish Affairs.
A new regulatory body would be established on the taxpayers’ dime to police all internet content, Guilbeault added. Tech giants that refuse or fail to comply would incur financial penalties that would have to be paid to Trudeau and his cronies.
Will the 2nd Amendment Be Destroyed By the Biden Admin?
“My job is to ensure the safety and security of the Canadian population. That’s what I’m here for,” Guilbeault stated during the bill’s official unveiling.
“I think it’s going to be a really good remedy to a number of problems, but it won’t solve everything. One of the issues I’ve learned, looking at different models, is you shouldn’t try to tackle everything from the get-go.”
Nothing hurts a population more than to have its government decide which speech is “acceptable” and which is not. Yet, Guilbeault says that putting a stranglehold on Canadian free speech will “ultimately … create a safer environment for all people online and not just for a handful.”
Sorry. No data so far.
Trudeau already invited communist Chinese troops to train on American soil – why not also stamp out Canadian free speech?
As you may recall, Trudeau welcomed with open arms communist Chinese troops, which were brought in to Canada to train. It only makes sense, then, for Trudeau to launch a Chinese-style censorship scheme, which will soon be taken up for a vote by the Canadian parliament.
According to Guilbeault, too many Canadian politicians have been “retreating from public service” because some people are saying mean things about them online. To ensure that their feelings are not hurt ever again, Guilbeault and Trudeau want to regulate all online speech to create a “safer environment” for politicians.
“[As] a dad and stepdad to six kids, I know more can and should be done to create a safer online environment,” Guilbeault says.
Continuing to allow Canadians to have free speech is “a nightmare” for Canada’s politicians he warns. Some, being thin-skinned wimps, have actually decided to “take themselves out of that public debate because the conditions under which we’re asking them to participate simply aren’t sustainable.”
“We know it’s a minority of actors but a very organized, a very loud minority, and something must be done,” Guilbeault further complained.
The only way to preserve the “core values shared by Canadians,” he insists, is to silence anyone who says something online that makes a politician upset. Doing this, Guilbeault insists, will preserve “democracy” while maintaining “inclusive and accountable governance, peaceful pluralism, and respect for diversity and human rights.”
“Hate speech will definitely be part of the legislation that will be tabled, but we also want to encompass other online harms that are taking place,” he added.
Guilbeault made clear to point out that it will not matter whether or not the platform is based out of Canada. If it does business in Canada, it will have to censor mean things that make Canadian politicians feel sad or upset.
